    I was up in the air about the F8 Coupe when it first came out but I really like the Spider in the F8. The rear treatment of the engine cover is well done while still keeping the "blown" rear wing design. I realize this is also part of the 488/Pista Spider as well. Although in my eyes, this is very elegant while being harmonious with the rest of the design.

    Damn, that's really nice. Surprised to see it so soon - was expecting Sept 24.

    Since they dropped the Tributo to F8 Spider, I dare say the V3 will be the same F8 XXXXXXX.

    So what will it be ? :)

    I love how the wheel wells are right on the tires but the car will never ship like that. The pic of the front end makes it look especially wide.

    Triple yellow is the only yellow l would consider. It is beautiful in natural sunlight. Ciao Bella!

    F8 Spider is growing on me. The body styling is much more complex than the 458 Spider, but l could learn to live with it. :)

    It’s so much better looking than the coupe I’m shocked.

    Just looking at the coupe vs the spider in pictures the proportions of the spider jump off the page! So much better. Again I know seeing in three dimensions must be the final determination, however so far I’m amazed. I like the coupe. I LOVE the spider.

    F8 is awesome in both coupe and spider. Comparison of the appearance of the coupe and the spider depends on preference. This is no different from the appearance of the other cars on this platform 458, 488 and Pista.
    The exterior color also play a role. The triple layer yellow is always extra special.

    Totally agree. The back flows way better with the Spider because of the flat engine bay. For me the Coupe's back still looks like a Noble M600.

    First, my jaw dropped when I saw it: An actual pretty Ferrari in the post-Pininfarina days. Then, my jaw dropped again in horror when I heard it: It's like they told the engineers, "Make it sound like someone is holding a pillow over a 458 soundtrack." Does Camilieri understand that Ferraris are known for their engine whine and scream, or have the outside consultants concluded that it won't meaningfully impact their profits? Literally my wife's Subaru Outback makes that sound when you floor it. (Hangs head, sulks).

    F8 Spider looks fantastic. Unfortunate for me because I ordered a Pista Spider and an F8 coupe. Got to say it as I see it though, it’s outstanding and nicer looking than either of the two coming my way. In fact it is probably the best looking variant from the platform - 10 models so far..

    I think it will be the same for SF90S. IMHO, these designs are better suited for open top form.
